That playlist listing drives me nuts. Why don't they sort it alphabetically? At least now it will be slightly easier to get through it.

Making you pay $50 and then giving you $50 worth of stuff isn't free.

Hey #Chrome guys, can you explain why my #GoogleChrome browser updated to Version 32 if it hasn't been released yet?

I really don't understand why, if you "wanted the browser to be about content, not chrome," you would name it Chrome. Why would you name it the very thing you don't want it to be about?

There's far too many useful features that were removed to make this worthwhile. I feel they took one step forward and three steps backwards. Aside from the missing features  you mentioned, here's some I came across:
1) There's no way to display the half streetview/half map view.
2) Directions don't let you add multiple destinations along your route.
3) When viewing directions, there's no option to see the streetview at each step in the directions.
4) The ability to view traffic or public transit isn't always available (not a fail, but poor UI, very confusing). 
5) Labs are gone; no latlong marker, distance measurement, etc.
6) You can't go backwards when moving along streetview (instead, you need to do a full 180)

Just got access to the #newgooglemaps. After only 5 minutes of use, I've already discovered a bunch of failures.
1) There's no way to display the half streetview/half map view
2) There's no drop down allowing you to add different layers (labels, webcams, weather, etc.).
3) The right-click menu is gone, along with all its corresponding functionality (zoom here, center here, directions to/from here, etc.).
4) Directions don't let you add multiple destinations along your route.
5) When viewing directions, there's no option to see the streetview at each step in the directions.
6) The ability to view traffic or public transit isn't always available (not a fail, but poor UI). 
On the plus side, they finally implemented the ability to search for a friends address by entering their name (if the friend is in your contacts).  YAAAAY!!!

Americans are more likely to marry someone of a different faith than they are to marry someone of a different political affiliation. 

I'm not sure if this says more about Americans' view on politics, on religion, or on marriage.
